  1. So, so sorry to hear about this. Deepest condolences to Steve and his family.
  2. A couple of years ago I exchanged emails with the folks from X-Tech. They are the new leaders in pro football shoulder pads. They make those ridiculously low profile pads that have become so popular. I asked if they had any intentions of developing protection for umpires and their answer was as soon as they finished establishing dominance in the NFL, umpire gear was next on their list. I will have to follow up. Here is an article from the NY Post. https://nypost.com/2017/11/25/these-shoulder-pads-could-help-the-future-of-football/
  3. Good luck to you. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Late Season EJ

    He comes back with "Every game with you there's a problem. You go looking for these things, to get yourself into the game. You are unbelievable." Sure seems to warrant an ejection under Section 2 of the Primary Ejection Criteria (PEC) "Profane, Personal, Prolonged." But, hey, that's just me.
  6. Smoltz mentioned this during the discussion. He stated that they were coached to try and hit the runner (not to injure) to try and draw the interference call.
  7. Congrats on a wise decision. You will not regret this later in life. Also, keep in mind: He will have a 50% vote on choosing your nursing home...

  10. https://www.inquirer.com/high-school-sports/american-legion-baseball-decline-military-aau-showcases-20190727.html?outputType=amp&__twitter_impression=true We have seen a marked decline in the local Legion programs around here. Has anyone else experienced these conditions?
  11. This year I started working on my footwork in the first inning as the infielders make their warm up throws. I stand in the deep infield and treat their throws just like plays. Watch the throw, pivot, focus on the bag, read F3 and listen for the pop. Then watch F2s throw and away we go. Found this is a great way to get my brain and eyes synched up BEFORE a real decision needs to be made and nudges the muscle memory for the footwork and call timing. Only do it in the first inning though.
